5.0 out of 5 stars (This review is for the vinyl LP) From 1995 to 2000 24 April 2014
Format:Audio CD
I played PUSA I and II constantly. Listening to 'Dune Buggy' on a beach in another time. Driving across Australia in a 90s Toyota Hiace with my friends singing along to 'Mach 5' and 'Volcano'. If you'd have told me that in 2014 I'd be lowering the stylus on their new album I'd have laughed in disbelief. Because it shames me to admit I've not bought an LP of theirs since II was released in 1997.
I've just played 'Kudos To You' for the first time and PUSA have still got that instantly recognizable kooky sound. The songs are maybe not as full on rocking out as old PUSA. They have have mellowed slightly-but thats fine, so have I. After listening I was humming the lyrics to 'Rooftops in Spain', 'Crown Victoria' and 'Flea vs Mite'. This is a damn fine album and one that I will keep coming back to.
The vinyl is heavyweight with a printed insert/lyric sheet. The LP sleeve is of the dreaded plain white paper and will leave copious amounts of paper fragments behind. The pressing is not perfect-bumps and hollows are evident on my copy and pure audiophiles may flinch whilst playing the LP. I was too busy singing along to care.

EDIT. Further plays have made me realize this LP rocks just as hard as their first two albums-I think the overall sound has been refined over the years.

5.0 out of 5 stars No POTUSA, Kudos to *You*. 26 Mar 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Right: straight up, I LOVE this new album from the Presidents. It's been a long old wait since These Are The Good Times People came out in 2008 and while I think that was a great album with some wonderful individual tracks, for me it did not hang together quite as cohesively as their previous efforts.

Kudos To You! *does* work as a whole album and it doesn't have a bad track on it, despite the fact that some of the songs have been kicking around for a while in different forms. I don't normally do this but as I have an essay to write for college, here's a track by track:

Slow Slow Fly - The story of the life cycle of a fly. Of course. It has an extended intro reminiscent of 'Feather Pluckin' and 'Body'. The cute little bass line to kick off, the familiar fuzzy guitar sound, the low-key drums provide a lovely sort of 'welcome back!' opening to the album. It doesn't take its time to turn into a rocker with some great vocal arrangements. A slower, acoustic version (with alternative lyrics) is available on The Giraffes album '13 Other Dimensions'. This amped up version is quite an improvement.

Crappy Ghost - Probably my favourite track. It's classic Presidents and while I could take a guess, I have no idea what's going on lyrically! There's a girl, she plays guitar, she's a ghost. Or is she? It's fast paced with tight rhythms, stabs and boasts the most memorable melody on the album (it's been the earworm that's stopped me falling asleep for a couple of nights now).

Good Morning Tycoon - A commentary of sorts on being rich and lonely. Maybe. But with amusing lyrics. A reworking of a track Chris put out as 'The Giraffes'. Great interplay between the vocal performances, shifts in dynamics and a gentler pace - the chorus is a grower.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stop and feel the Breeze Wheeze between the Trees 18 Feb 2014
By xi34-com - Published on Amazon.com
Way back in the mid-90's I acquired my very first CD: The Presidents of the United States of America's self-titled debut. I loved it so much that I picked up their second LP "II" as well. My best friend and I even sang along to "Volcano" for our 5th grade talent show! (I remember a kid coming up to me on the playground to say how funny the "poop in your Pampers" line was.)

Fast forward nearly 20 years to 2014 and PUSA is releasing their 7th full-length! I've listened to enough music since 5th grade to know that bands can change their sound a lot in two decades. Luckily, PUSA is not one of those bands. Still playing upbeat power-pop songs about small creatures, etc., The Presidents have successfully released another solid alternative rock album.

Self-released and funded by pre-orders via PledgeMusic.com, "Kudos To You" is sure to leave you in a better mood than you were in before you heard it. And even though I don't think this album tops their first two, I am nowhere near disappointed.

To get even more tap for your toes, order this album from pledgemusic.com/pusa; not only will you get the "Kudos To You" bonus track "Truckstop on the Moon" but also a download of their newest live album, "Thanks! For The Feedback"!

5.0 out of 5 stars These Guys Are So Underrated! 18 Feb 2014
By Son of SPOON! - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
PUSA is one of my favorite bands. You cannot listen to an album like Kudos to You! and remain sad, depressed, or in the grips of any sort of negativity. A lot of people dismiss the Presidents as some kind of silly novelty act, but that's a far too simple take on what these guys do. Sure, they aren't afraid to be silly, and happy, and just plain weird, but that's exactly why I like them so much. And, you should too. Life's too short to indulge in a bunch of angst-ridden nonsense. RIDE THE ELECTRIC SPIDER TODAY!

5.0 out of 5 stars PUSA ROCKS! 20 Feb 2014
By Richard Little - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Yet another great album from the Presidents. I like every song but my early favorites are Rooftops in Spain, Slow Slow Fly, Electric Spider and Flea vs Mite.

If you're not a PUSA fan(atic), you need to be.

Start here and work back through their previous albums until your head explodes like a piñata full of happiness.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but could be better 19 Feb 2014

This album has some good songs but I have to take a star away because some of the songs sound too much like Caspar Babypants.

This album is even more than I could have ever asked for. 14 songs of awesomeness written by the one and only PUSA. I love supporting these guys and you should too!
